Earl Duncan played basketball for Syracuse University for one season. Duncan was a highly recruited guard out of the Los Angeles area, and came to Syracuse with high expectations.

Duncan had to sit out his freshman season due to academic reasons mandated by Proposition 48. He would be the top reserve player for the Orangemen. He shot a solid 41% from three point range, and provided decent ball handling to help out at the poing guard position.

However, Duncan was unhappy with his playing time, and with Sherman Douglas, and classmates Stevie Thompson and Matt Roe all ahead of him on the depth chart, Duncan figured the opportunities would not be there for him, and he transferred to Rutgers.

Duncan would flourish at Rutgers, where he was joined by fellow Syracuse transfer Keith Hughes. The duo would lead Rutgers to their first NCAA tournament berth. In his two years at Rutgers, Duncan would play 57 games, score 831 points for a 14.6 ppg, have 212 assists (3.7 apg), shoot 40.7% from three point range on 88-216 shooting, and hit 82% of his free throws (193-234).

Duncan would be drafted in the second round of the 1991 CBA draft by Wichita Falls, and would play in the league for a few years.
